Alright, I’m the first to admit that my usual idea of a milkshake involves some vanilla ice cream and a handful of cookies. Maybe a little chocolate syrup. If I’m feeling fancy, I might add sprinkles for the crazy colors.
If I’m feeling really fancy? I might just go ahead and roast some fruit to blend up in that milkshake.
It seriously brings a whole new depth to your standard strawberry milkshake. Who cares if your husband rolls his eyes at you when he sees you turn on the oven to make a milkshake. He just doesn’t understand. He’s not a foodie, like you. He should just be careful before you pluck those eyeballs out with a pair of pliers.
That wasn’t, like, a confession or anything. His eyeballs are perfectly intact. Should they ever be plucked out, I can assure that I had nothing to do with it. Probably.
Let’s all just move on before I end up in jail, shall we?
I added hot fudge sauce to my milkshake. I really feel, deep in my heart, that hot fudge sauce is undervalued in the food world. I’m on a mission to change that. Just in case you are out of hot fudge sauce, you can certainly mix in some chocolate syrup or Nutella.
On the other hand, if you have an abundance of hot fudge sauce, I have the recipes for you.
Roasted Strawberry Hot Fudge Milkshake
1 cup diced strawberries
2 scoops ice cream
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup hot fudge sauce, Nutella, or chocolate syrup
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the diced strawberries on a parchment lined baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow the strawberries to cool to room temperature or colder.
Add everything to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
